why is 2.50 m and 2.05 are not the same in distance

Which would you rather have?
$2.50 (two dollars and fifty cents)
or
$2.05 (two dollars and five cents)
An explanation:
2.50 means that the 5 is in the tenths place. 2.50 = 2 and 5/10
2.05 means that the 0 is in the tenths place. 2.05 = 2 and 0/10.
